How we learn language: the Mango methodology

Vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar and culture are part of Mango's Intuitive Language Construction.

Learning without realizing it, focusing on common words and phrases, memory building exercises and cultural insights are key components in the Mango Methodology, outlined in a four minute video that can put you on track to learn a new language. And, you'll learn about "stealth grammar"!

Also, check out this interesting article about how one's native language may or may not affect the actual way you think.
